Posted Breed: Poodle (Standard) (long coat). Thank you for your interest in a rescued dog. Our descriptions contain all that we know about this dog today. We'll update as more information is known. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. While we like to know what you like in looks, a dog is more than a pretty face. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families. Are you looking to adopt within the next 30 days? If so please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and complete the application. You'll find it in the menu on the left hand side. You'll also find a total listing of all our dogs available. Just browsing but interested in poodles and poodle mixes? Please drop a note to applications@carolinapoodlerescue.org with your name, address and phone # and email. We'll add you to our mailing list. thanks the CPR Adoption team Date into Rescue: 9/20/2016 Reason for being in rescue: Owner release/ Pca rescue. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? yes, Kingston is on Prozac for behavior problems and anxiety, Pepcid for a sensitive stomach and Zyrtec for food allergies. He is on a special diet, Taste of the Wild Rabbit. All together his medications run around $30 to $40 per month Weight: about 60 lbs Height: about 27" at the shoulder Adoption Fee: $229 Fence needed? Yes without question, Kingston needs the security of a fenced in yard to play. He is not a leash walk only kind of guy What kind of home would be best for me? ​Kingston needs an extremely experienced owner who can work with his anxieties and challenges and understand that much of the way he is was created by an abusive human. He will get better and better but he will always have a strong personality that needs understanding. What is my personality like? Kingston can be a lively and loving canine companion in the right home. He has no real preference male or female and I think would actually like a couple to live with. He could be an only dog although a very stable, strong standard poodle brother or sister that would be able to keep up with him and continue to teach him how to play the right way would work. Kingston likes other dogs but he does not know how to enjoy their company. Kingston is house trained and crate trained although the crate is not his favorite place. He pulls on a lead but can be walked nicely on a front lead harness. He absolutely loves toys and he will gather all his squeaky toys together on his bed. He can stay outside and watch the countryside go by him for hours. NO CATS!!!!! ABSOLUTELY NO KIDS UNDER 18 YEARS OLD Kingston was originally purchased as a puppy by a young woman in what she thought was a stable relationship but when Kingston was just a year old, the couple broke up and Kingston and his owner moved in with her parents. At the time he was a pretty happy pup with just a bit of a resource guarder showing . But....the owner's father did not like Kingston and banned him from the house shortly after they moved in. The owner moved Kingston from friend to friend trying to find a safe place for him and as he bounced and bounced, his behavior grew worse. A few months after, she moved in with a relative who was openly verbally abusive to both Kingston and his owner. The owner tried training and it was starting to work but she was not consistent with following through which confused Kingston even more. Her trainer observed the verbal abuse first hand. If there was physical abuse, it was never in front of anyone that we know of but the possibility exists. Eventually, the owner got back on track and moved into her own apartment but at that point, Kingston got little exercise and socialization. The owner worked long hours and Kingston was often crated 10+ hours and left alone. His behaviors (charging and biting at strangers) finally got to the point where the owner realized neither of them were happy and reached out to rescue. In his first day at the poodle farm, Kingston bit and drew blood on a caregiver who simply entered the room he was in. At that point, our director took him home and the first full morning he was with CPR, she took him to a vet where he was proscribed Prozac. The Prozac has been a tremendous help in curbing Kingston's anxieties and aggression. Kingston has not bit anyone else since that day. When Kingston is on his medication, he is fairly even tempered and able to be worked with. When Kingston is in a good mood, he is a joy to be around. He is playful and affectionate and will chase a ball, go for a walk or cuddle on the couch watching tv. He will always be a problem around strangers and will bark and snap at anyone coming in his house that he does not know. Once he knows you, he's much easier. He also meets strangers easier when he is outside his yard and on leash. There is much more to Kingston - more that makes more sense if he's met in person. If your interested in exploring giving a dog a home who truly needs a home, if you think you can handle the anxiety and can keep him on medication that is good for him, if your willing to work to find activities that he will enjoy and will help him gain confidence, if you don't have many visitors and your visitors are also dog savvy, he may be a good fit. It's a lot of "if's" and we understand it won't be easy but out there somewhere is a home he can thrive in. We're going to be extremely careful in placing Kingston. How I act when I first meet new people: Apprehensive and afraid. It could take several meetings for Kingston to accept you. Other notes - Kingston does best with very short hair. His hair is oily. If it gets too long it does not look good at all. We keep him short overall including his ears. House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule. My age: birthdate 8/20/2012 Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.

More About Poodle (Standard) Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

Date into Rescue: 2/8/2017 Reason for being in rescue: Pulled from a NC shelter, Oreo was surrendered by her owner when they moved. Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? Oreo came to us with heartworms, but tested negative 12/3/2017! No more heartworms! Weight: 79 lb Height: Estimated 17 in at the shoulder Spayed/Neutered: Yes Adoption Fee: $125 Fence needed? Not needed, but Oreo would love one What kind of home would be best for me? Oreo would love somewhere to romp and play and run and then cuddle time with her person! She is good with dogs around her size and would love a dog friend to play and spend time with. She does not need to go to a home with other small animals; she seems to think they are toys. What is my personality like? Oreo came to the rescue as a bonded pair with her little poodle friend, Bailey. They were not bonded and Oreo really found herself when they were separated, so we decided to adopt them separately. Oreo loves to romp and play. She is always running and playing in our big field with her other big dog friends. After a full day of play she loves to lie in the sun or in the cool grass. Oreo has a pretty moderate energy level. She is pretty independent for the most part, but she does enjoy being affectionate with people. How do I act when I first meet new people? Friendly. Other tips and tidbits: House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.

Date into Rescue: 8/25/2017 Reason for being in rescue: Pulled from a SC shelter, was found as a stray Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? None noted Weight: 44 lb Height: 19-20 in at the shoulder Spayed/Neutered: Yes Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? I would love a fenced in area to explore in.. Or just a lot of walks. What kind of home would be best for me? I am looking for my retirement home somewhere maybe on a farm where I can bask in the sunshine and go on lots of nature walks. What is my personality like? I'm a older lady but not too old! I still love to wander through the woods and play a little with dogs of my size. When I am outside there is nothing stopping this nose from working. I could sniff and roam all day long and come home to soak my paws and take it easy. That would be the perfect life for me. I don't ask for much! I get carried away while on a leash so a harness would be best to walk me with since I like to pull. Treats? Ooooh I love them. This lady at Carolina Poodle Rescue thinks that I know basic commands but it has just been awhile since this gal has had to do them. My story is short and sweet.. I was found as a stray in South Carolina and taken to a local shelter.. but now I am at the farm! I don't get to roam as much as I'd like to though.. and I would also love to be reminded on how to be a pet again. How do I act when I first meet new people? Friendly.. but it is hard to get my attention with my nose to the ground. Other Tips and Tidbits: House trained?

None noted Weight: 57 lb Height: Estimated 10 in at the shoulder Spayed/Neutered: Yes Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? A fence would be ideal until fully leash trained What kind of home would be best for me? Hank needs a kind, low-key and patient home that does not mind working with him. Hank came to the rescue from a very under-socialized environment. He has made lots of progress, but is still learning what being someone's pet really is. He is good with other dogs, but does not care for cats. What is my personality like? Hank's story is more like a song. His past is rocky which is why he is so unsure of new people, but boy does this dog have potential. Hank has been with us for 6 months and it's so hard to believe that the terrified dog hiding in the back of his pen is now this bright vibrant lap dog. We have put real dedication into this guy and it surely shows. This insecure, troubled soul has turn into a glorified toy hoarder and a huge baby that loves to give kisses. All he really wants is just to be a families dog. Not a yard ornament. Not something to look at when you are bored. But a real part of your family. Mind you, Hank is still apprehensive of new people, but he has shown us if you are willing to try with him then he will most definitely try with you. Winning him over just takes a little time and his favorite snack of course - cheese puffs! He still needs leash work; we think he will learn successfully with time and a front walking harness. How do I act when I first meet new people? Weary of new people. It takes a little time but then he is basically a lap dog. Other tips and tidbits: Hank can be VERY affectionate once he's comfortable with someone and he really loves cheese puffs! House trained?

I still need a little socialization but I'm getting really good at learning people aren't bad at all! What is my personality like? I have a shy personality. I haven't been around many people or many different places. So I can be a little timid with new things.
